OK hotel in Monticello

The whole time we were there, the staff was extremely friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The only downside to our stay was the breakfast. Very limited options for a hotel that charged over $100 a night.

Nice Hotel, close to the Polar Express

5 out of 5
by from Carlyle, United States of America
Posted Nov 27, 2016
Pros: The trash cans in the hall way by the elevator was overflowing with bottles when we arrived and yet when we left. Should have been emptied.
Cons: An extra waste can in the rooms.
Location: Seems to be nice and interesting things available to do in the area. Wish we had more time to spend.
We were very pleased with our stay. The pool was very large and nice for our grandsons to swim in. Our rooms seemed to have been newly redone....there were a few missing baseboards through out the hotel, but that didn't bother us. The continental breakfast was great.

Room renovation

The room was in the process of being renovated. No chairs in the room (had to pull in my own chairs from a stack of chairs at the end of the hallway), holes in the wall from old tv cables, carpet wasn't stapled down, floor boards missing. The room should NOT have been available for guest stay.

Not Terrible, Barely Good

I stayed here because everything in Champaign (25 min. away) was sold out. I was happy to not spend $200/ night, and it was reasonably close to campus. The kid who checked me in at 10:00 pm Friday night was a pleasant surprise - cheerful and courteous. My room was a disappointment. Big - about double the size of a regular room - but sparse and cold ... and directly across from the ice machine, which some guy decided to use to fill his pickup truck at 1:30 am. I'd say it's ok in a pinch but nothing to write home about.

Losing Ground

I have stayed here several times to attend conferences at the nearby Robert Allerton conference center. The hotel has always been a clean and comfortable place to stay, but during this trip (Sept. 2015) I noticed several problems. Of most concern is that my room was not serviced one day. I came back at the end of the day and the bed was unmade, used towels were still on the floor, etc. I mentioned this when I checked out, and the desk clerk just said she would make a note of it - no offer of a discount or other compensation. I did not ask for any compensation, though, so I suppose she could not be faulted too much for that. The hotel these days has a general feeling of being a little run down and outdated. There was a stack of boxes at the end of the hall that was there all three days of my stay. Wall molding was missing in several places, and it did not look like it was because of renovations. The refrigerator did not seem to be working properly; thankfully, I did not need it. The toilet seat was a little loose. Room temperature was controlled by an old, noisy wall HVAC unit. There were old stains on the carpet. There was dry wall dust behind the bedside table, presumably from some old reno work. On the positive side, the bed was comfortable, and the linens seemed to be clean. I ran out of soap one day (missed by maid), and the desk clerk promptly delivered it after I requested it. The complementary breakfast was fairly well stocked, and the eating area was basically clean

Pros: IT IS CLOSE TO THE MUSEUM WE WERE VISITING
Cons: SEE ABOVE
NEEDED TWO 3 OUTLET WALL TAPS TO HAVE ENOUGH OUTLETS FOR THE BATH AND IN BETWEEN THE BEDS. IN THE BATH THE CORD FOR THE HAIR DRYER IS SO SHORT THAT WHEN IT IS PLUGGED IN IT COVERS THE OTHER OUTLET AND THE OTHER WE NEEDED FOR MORE OUTLETS FOR MY CPAP AND PHONE CHARGERS. WHEN WE CHECKED IN ON FRIDAY THERE WERE 2 LITTLE GIRLS WHO SEEMED TO BE RELATED TO THE WOMAN WHO CHECKED US IN AND THEY WERE VIEWING CARTOONS ON THE BUSINESS CENTER COMPUTER. WE WENT OUT AND WHEN WE CAME BACK THE GIRLS WERE UNATTENDED AND ONE WAS STILL ON THE BUSINESS COMPUTER ANDTHE OTHER WAS ON THE COMPUTER BEHIND THE FRONT DESK. TWO OTHER SETS OF GUESTS WAITED TO BE CHECKED IN. WHEN THE WOMAN RETURNED IT SEEMED SHE HAD LEFT TO PICK UP ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER. WHILE SHE WAS APOLEGETIC IT SEEMS VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. WE HAD A TABLE IN THE ROOM BUT NO CHAIR AND IT TOOK 2 REQUESTS TO GET A CHAIR. THE YOUNG WOMAN WHO CLEANED OUR ROOM WAS HELPFUL AND PLEASANT.
